Maintenance is included and was originally signed into the lease, Including oil changes and fluid changes. Great opportunity to gain loyalty. Commute has changed and need to make changes with transportation.

The cash due makes this effectively ~$600/mo, which kills this deal. Maintenance also doesn’t transfer unless you got UC+.

Thanks Jon. What do you recommend - I am not really driving this car - it seems like I could buy out the lease and then sell, and pocket anywhere from 3K to 4K, but was thinking I should try this first… What do you recommend?


Sell it to a third party - Carvana, Vroom, Carmax, etc.

Might want to update the model year.

If you can sell it to 3rd party dealers with 3k positive equity then why bother transferring the lease? Lease transfer takes longer and adds more uncertainty.


Upfront cash is 5.8k or 3k?

It’ll be a total of $5.8K, of which $2.8 will be refunded at the end of the lease.

Unfortunately it looks like the option to sell this to a third-party buyer closed as of last night :frowning:

Initially sounded like it was just more complicated but now it sounds like it might be true - I stand corrected…

No doubt a direct sale to a third-party is generally more straightforward than doing a swap. In the case of BMWs right now though, it looks like that door has now closed, at least for the time being :frowning:

If you’re asking for that much cash upfront, you’ll need to add that to the title. You should also add the monthly payment to the title as well.

Yes correct!

Interested if 3000 cash payment is not required.

I think you should look at some broker deals on here as a comparison. While I agree the mileage here is great I think your amount due upfront is on the high side when you compare to where brokers can get someone for a new 330xi. That being said - not sure if you listed on SAL or LeaseTrader yet but you might have some luck there with your current ask.

You should probably respond to the posts above.

Open to a lower cash payment than 3000, but will need something significant…thx

Would you take $2k? You may want to be more specific for folks interested in your car.

I am not interested in your car, BTW.


I am interested in taking over the lease, but not willing to pay the cash due
